Just to get the Tactics Outpost off the ground again, What are your preferred methods for dealing with tanks? This is assuming a tank can only be destroyed by a direct grenade hit (we don't have any players with LAWs at our field)

Generally, we go for a diversion. everyone on the field directs their fire towards the tank's windshield. Other than drawing the attention of the driver and gunners, this thoroughly coats the windshield in a layer of paint, making it difficult to see out. We then have a small squad armed with grenades move in and take out the tank from very close range (squadbusters hardly ever work, so the closer the better :laugh: ). Can you think of any tactics that would work better, especially on skinny roads in the woods without much cover other than some bushes and buildings about forty feet from the road?

use their size against them, as well as the influence they have on their team.

Dig a hole in the middle of the road, get in it, bury urself, wait till the tank comes by. Death from below.

Warning: actually doing this might end in suffication or getting run over.
but hey, anything for the win, right?

Bah, if you're gonna get creative get up in/on the trees/roofs if there are any and try to chuck the grenades from there...:P

In reality though, if the tank has only a main "gun" that can only shoot in a view pattern in FRONT of the tank, try and take out the guys around it, preferably from a distance, and just get around it and use the grenades. If however it has a 360 degree turret, yeah, your plan seems to be bout the best you'll have, or you can combine the 2, and have a group hit the back and the front at the same time.

To expand on this. Tanks have an affect on the side there on, it gives experienced players the ability to lead charges that they normally couldn't do. Use this to your advantage before you take the tank out get into a flanking position where the tank cant get you off to the side and wait for the op for to move up behind the tank. When they make there move take them out. Try to take out the experienced players first that are leading the charge. This can be more devastating to the other side then just taking out the tank really quick especially to the less experienced players.

Just for the record shooting up the front of the tank is only wasting paint. It does not make it harder to see if they used the right netting. Here is a picture of our tank all painted up an i can just fine out of it.

Right well, idk and i dont feel like pming at the moment, so i just wanna ask a few quick questions bout ur tank

1, thatd probably make you slimy/wetter than hell from all the spray going in

2, is that a main gun or the thing ur supposed to shoot that looks like a 40mm tube on the front?

3, was the slot in the passenger side for a side gunner besides the driver, or was that from people shooting it?

Well, I was just at Splat Tag and they have a tank. The tank started harrasing our team and it went away, then when it came back, I hid behind a big tree and waited for it to pass then when the tank passed, I ran up and hit the back of the tank with a Squad Blaster and took the tank out. That seemed to work just fine. Hide, Wait for it to pass, then pop up and hit with a grenade or a rocket.

1. Most of the paint stays on the out side of the tank.
2. Yes it is an nerf launcher.
3. That is a side gunners hole.

This is a picture of the tank crew afterwards. From left to right. Rear gunner Striker, front gunner Dozer, Driver Deadman, Tank walker Mouth.
As you can see we had very little paint on us.

yeah the tank we use is really just a converted van, and has hardly any netting, just safety glass with portholes for firing. plexiglass, unlike plastic, gets very gummed up with the extra oily "anti-cheating" (like it works :laugh: ) paint we use at our field.

How is that? In scenario's theres nothing better to help your side than a well run tank. Lots of people like watching tank on tank battles. Tanks add a different aspect to games making them more challenging and fun.

At alot of fields one grenade only disables a tank for 5 minutes. so when some guy runs up to me and nades me he still gets shot up good.

At my home area we have two teams. Legacy X, my team, has no tank, but the other guys pooled their money and bought a golf cart and made it nto a tank. We're thing about getting a large two seater go kart and adding a third higher up seat on the back and making it into a tank. But we played a team vs team match one day and they had there tank with them. It was a woodsball match that crossed over a meadow. We have two snipers on our team so we slipped on our ghili suits and waited in the grass, our entire team covered in it. The tank got right in the middle of us and there team broke the treeline. I and the other sniper took out the tank with a grenade and picked of the rest of the team from the grass. Not a person was lost that day.
